Stinger update

Good progress on the Stinger. It's a really easy install. All the bits are now wiggling, which is always a good milestone to achieve.

The only slight hiccup was the tail linkage geometry. With the ball links as they came the pushrods were pretty stiff. After playing around for a while, all I needed to do was raise the balls slightly (oh er!). Now it's all good.

I've just got to balance it, put the wing servo covers on etc.

Seafield slope

Look what I just found three minutes from my front door. Facing south west and not even a long walk.  All I need now is some warm summer evenings and a work life balance!
